– 2006 Harley-Davidson FLHX/I Street Glide
Only a Harley® can lay bare this much custom style without compromising comfort. The new FLHX Street Glide.™ Check out the less-is-more look. Mirrors mounted right in the fairing. Solo headlight. It’s a front end worthy of triple-takes. Chrome stretched console and smoked chrome tank badges are works of art. Slammed suspension. Clean hardbags. This is every bit a Glide™ with a whole lot of street. Pry your eyes off the rear ground effects and new LED fender lights and then get in the bucket seat. Carb or EFI Twin Cam 88® power and Advanced Audio System by Harman/Kardon® await. Just right for parading all this style from one end of the country to the other.
2006 FLHX/I Street Glide™
Custom touches include Streamliner footboards, brake pedal and passenger pegs. A stretched, chrome fuel tank console has an embossed, diamond-cut nameplate. The tank features a special smoked-chrome emblem. The result is a touring motorcycle that looks lower, lighter and cleaner than an Electra Glide and rolls down the road with more attitude. The Street Glide is available in four solid colors: Vivid Black, Black Pearl, Black Cherry and Deep Cobalt.
